Not a place you want to spend your working life. Very stressful not safe but above all as an employee you are treated like 2nd class and you cannot get time off made work long hours nearly every weekend. You will not look well after working here.
Pros
Local
Cons
Long hours bad safety. Badly effects your wellbeing.

Flexible work hours provided solid platform for performing well in the day-to-day role. Collaborative culture through different teams and openly encouraged to form opinions and participate cross-functionally and with different managerial groups. Overall, a great experience.

A lot of emphasis on working together. Communication is well done and management are very friendly. It does feel a lot like a living community in many ways. Some days can be tough when an a larger issue affects many sites but that kinda comes with any job in IT.

Keep well away from this place. There is a stark difference from what actually happens on a daily basis from the the picture that was painted at the interview. Steer clear

Kerry is a terrible place to work. It's run by kids straight out of college who never worked a day in their lives. They keep check on every minute at the clock. The shift work requires you to work 7 days, evenings or nights a week.

I worked there for a number of months, on night shift, despite asking to be moved onto the day shift as didn't suit, they didn't take into consideration, despite newcomers getting in on days, I was left on nights. Also, little or no Irish working there so tend to be in the minority.

I found the job to be fine at the time although getting up at 5:30 in the morning for two hours of work became frustrating, i would much rather a 5 hour or 10 hour stint.
